The Garex Two Mobile is a bit of history in Amateur Radio circles. Not many people will have heard of the Two Mobile, but I have one and thought it worth recording the history of the radio somewhere on the net.
I could not have brought the information on this page together without the help of Peter Longhurst G3ZVI “Mr GAREX” himself, we well as Mike Foster G8AMG and Bill Curtis G8BGR, so thank you.
The following files are all in pdf format, and some are quite large in order to retain the quality of the pictures.
